Some common queries about the time it takes to sell your home

As a quick property buying company, we have extensive knowledge of home sales and can offer these answers to some of the common queries we hear about how long selling can take:

✅ What's the minimum amount of time it takes to sell through an estate agent?

It’s important to understand that the property market can fluctuate and you might be able to sell a house within weeks, or you might not find a buyer for months or even a year or more. However, as a general guideline the shortest possible time it can take from listing a home for sale through to formally exchanging contracts is at least a few months.

✅ Why does selling a house through an estate agent take so much time?

Because of the many steps involved with the process, starting with the initial listing of your home for sale and attracting potential buyers to view the property in person. After you’ve secured a buyer this way there is still a lot of legal and other paperwork to process, which means the process can stretch out for several months.

✅ What's the quickest way that I can sell my house or flat?

As the guide above explains, you might be waiting many months to find a buyer if you sell through an estate agent. Quicker alternatives for selling are doing so at auction, or selling to a quick property buying company like LDN Properties. Although both will get you a fast sale, if you decide to sell at auction you will have to pay the auctioneer fees for organising the sale.
